New Years Count Down Party
SO GRATEFUL TO BE PARTNERING WITH BANANA REPUBLIC THIS NEW YEAR TO SHARE WITH YOU SOME OF MY FAVORITE LAYERING SWEATERS
The champagne is bubbling in anticipation with New Years right around the corner. In years past, I have celebrated in festively simple gatherings with close friends and a fire. The clinking of full drink flutes count us down hour by hour. One of my favorite New Years traditions is the layering of food and fun until the big 3...2...1...
New Years Countdown Party
With 3 hours till midnight, play charades or other games in teams of three.
Appetizer of the hour: 3 Little Pigs in a Blanket
(Personally not a fan of hotdogs. A great substitute would be cooked turkey bacon wrapped around arugula & brie croissants)
Still 2 hours to go. A photo booth set up for doting pairs to take pictures in front of - polaroid pics a must!
Drink of the hour: Goody two - shoes
(Add two wedges of oranges, limes, or lemons to the edge of each drink)
Only 1 hour left, share one memory from this past year that you will never forget.
Dessert of the hour: One of a Kind-bar
(Break up Kind bars, mix with cookie dough, & bake or crumble up Kind bars on top of your dessert of choice)
Happy New Year!
Sparkle. Confetti. Champagne. Cheers!
After a busy holiday season with family, I like adding a little sparkle to something simple. With this being my first New Years in New York, I'll be warming up in a V neck sweater - maybe a layer or two. I am in love with this Banana Republic silver lace bomber jacket that dresses up any outfit and is appropriate for work & with friends.
SHOP THE LOOK
The best part about New Years are the sparklers & fireworks. The same could be said about your outfit - silver and sparkle are in abundance at Banana Republic. I am also a fan of a brooch moment as a little nod to eras past. This tassel brooch is one I've never seen before and have quickly fallen in love with for this year's count down.
